Samana is considered one of the most beautiful areas of the Dominican Republic, yet remains one of the least known gems of the Caribbean. Its tourist industry has not yet exploited the full potential of its location: the tropical forests, coconut groves, hundreds of cozy alcove beaches with turquoise crystal clear waters, waterfalls, protected national parks, a protected bay, a peninsula.

Located on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean in the northeastern part of the Dominican Republic, Samana is known for its mountains, of which it is almost entirely formed. It is the breeding place of the humpback whale, where thousands come to the coast from January to March. With the November 2006 opening of the new Samana El Catey International Airport, with non-stop Apple charter flights on Wednesdays and Saturdays from JFK, it is sure to blossom into one of the top Caribbean vacation destinations.

Whether you prefer the views of the Atlantic Ocean on the northern shores at the Grand Bahia Principe El Portillo, or the protected bay shores of the southern beaches at the Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa, or the exclusivity of a private island at the Luxury Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado Don Pablo, Samana is certainly worth adding to your vacation bucket list. Call your Dream Vacation Specialist today for more information.

When you hear it said that Negril Jamaica has some of the best beaches in the Caribbean it’s easy to imagine the powdery white sand and warm turquoise waters but to fully understand what makes these beaches the best you must visit personally.  I was lucky to be able to visit the Riu Palace Tropical Bay this summer with my husband, brother and sister-in-law.  Having visited Jamaica only once before, the Montego Bay area, I was excited to see this amazing beach I’d heard so much about.  And rest assured, the beach at the Riu Palace Tropical Bay delivered!  Calm waters make swimming in the ocean the only thing you’ll want to do in this vacation paradise.  Plan ahead and take a raft with you and you won’t be sorry, for hours I floated around the roped off beach area at leisure.  Being only 5’1″ ocean swimming can sometimes be a little perilous for me, it’s easy to get knocked over by a wave or be over my head deep in water while others are standing only chest deep, but the beach at the Riu Palace Tropical Bay is a much more gradual slope than many other Caribbean destinations.  I was able to walk way out in the bay without worry of not touching.  If you’ve been considering a waterproof camera this is the best place to bring one. The crystal clear Caribbean waters are perfect for finding star fish in the sand, catching shots of colorful fish swimming at your feet and snorkeling to your hearts delight!  If you’re a beach lover at heart the Riu Palace Tropical Bay is the perfect vacation retreat for you!  We loved it so much we only got in the pool twice!

Unfortunately mother nature isn’t checking your calendars or maps, but according to the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory hurricane season was officially over November 30th!! Do you know what this means? It means lets leave those heavy clothes at home and let’s get somewhere we can wear the bare minimum and feel great!! Vitamin D is the winter’s best remedy.

With the threats of hurricanes and tropical storms in the past, now is a great time to pack your bags and head to paradise. December travelers heading to the Caribbean or Mexico can look forward to daily temperatures ranging from lows of mid 70’s to highs of mid 80’s. You mostly have sand, sea, and sunshine.

The Caribbean’s high season heats up right before Christmas and lasts through April, so be prepared to make your travel plans well in advance to get the best rates. Looking for that awesome holiday vacation that everyone will remember? The Dreams Cancun Resort & Spa or the Ocean Blue in Punta Cana would be a top choice for adults and children. After Christmas is ideal if you want to go at a quiet time, because children are in school and a more romantic atmosphere prevails. The Iberostar Grand Hotel Bavaro, adults only, can give you the extra TLC you need after those long hours in the office. For those adults who just want to have fun just like the kids, try the Secrets St. James or Secrets Wild Orchid in Jamaica.
